Bombardier to Supply Commuter Cars for the RER A Line in Paris
Modern Double-deck Suburban Trains for Greater Paris
RATP announced today its decision to award and sign a contract with the Alstom-Bombardier consortium for the supply of 60 MI09 trainsets for the greater Paris suburb.
Pursuant to the contract to be signed, Bombardier will supply the 3 middle cars of the 5 car sets, which will be designed and assembled at Bombardier’s site in Crespin in the Valenciennes area. The presentation of the first train is scheduled for December 2010.
In the 1990s through to 2000, the same consortium designed and built the MI2N suburban trains, on which this new train is based, with added capacity, higher performance, environmentally friendly technology, and updated to meet current norms and regulations.
Jean Bergé, President of Bombardier Transportation France said: “Bombardier is pleased to participate, along with Alstom and the RATP, in the development and production of the MI09, a new generation train with many additional features.”
